AC Schnitzer E92 3-Series Coupe pic surfaces
AC Schnitzer is one of the premier BMW tuning houses in the world, so it is with great anticipation the Bimmer crowd has been waiting to see what the company has up its sleeve for the E92 BMW 3-Series Coupe. While we don't have official word from AC Schnitzer yet, we do have this pic that was posted on the e90post.com forum. The new front fascia appears to be a toned down version of the same one AC Schnitzer offers for the 3-Series Touring (wagon, shown right) already, and in our eyes the lower third of the fascia housing three intakes and a pair of fog lights looks much more measured on the coupe you see here. Two-thirds length side skirts can be seen between the wheels, and, though the view is obscured, we're sure AC Schnitzer's got a new rear skirt back there it's ready to kick up. The wheels are the company's type IV Magic Black rims that measure 20 inches from lip to lip. That is likely the maximum diameter that will fit in the wheel wells thanks to a suspension package that should lower the coupe and sharpen up its handling with a new antiroll bar and strut tower brace. An exhaust package and tuning chip to increase power will also likely be offered. Based on what AC Schnitzer already offers for the 3-Series Touring model, that's about all we can venture to guess will be offered on the 3-Series Coupe. We'll bring you more official shots once AC Schnitzer releases them.
Thanks for the tip, Thomas!
